Matthew Dillon is my given name, mom and dad thought it would be a great way for people to remember me. Rock Springs has been my home since birth and I wouldn’t change that for anything (besides Alaska). The things I like most are making people smile and fishing. I got into the recycling business all by chance. I had no knowledge of the industry prior to becoming a manager here at the Ray Lovato Recycling Center. I lead 6 other people with Checkered pasts, PTSD, domestic violence survivors and slower functioning ability’s. We are social misfits that make a second chance worth fighting for, not only in recycling but in life. I feel that the community you live should make ways for the environment to become just as popular as the coffee shop on the corner. Recycling should be presented in a way that the 5 year old is amazed cause the toy their parents bough was once a milk jug they drank from. And the 95 year old recycling the ensure bottle just smiles cause who knows how many times it been repurposed but it never seen the landfill and saved that much room for their grandchildren to enjoy. The center is named after Ray Lovato cause of the great things he did for the less fortunate family’s in the community. If family’s could not afford rent in low income housing Mr. Lovato let them work at the center and the rent was taken care of. Only catch was the next person coming thru the door you had to show them the ropes so the center was able run with compassion, love and great full people who other wise didn’t have a chance to make ends meet. And to me knowing and hearing his sisters and everyone say great things about him lets me know that my goal of a regional recycling center ran with people from troubled and horrifying past’s is a possible and realistic goal. And I believe the recidivism rate for repeat offenders would drop with program’s that welcomes them and their past, instead of blockading them cause of it.
